Anyone with Minecraft can easily install the pre-release. The current pre-release, 1.8.x Bountiful Update, is full of little tweaks and changes to the game, although there's no big headline feature as earlier updates have had.

Just managed to get minecraft to work on an old PowerPC mac ibook G4 for the girlfriend. Java 6 for pre-intel macs. This can be solved by installing the 1st release of java 6. The official line is that PowerPC macs wont work with java 6 but the reality is that a build was released for 10.4 and 10.5.
Java 1.6 for os 10.4 in the first link How to force the install when it says it contains a newer version of java. With java 6 sorted then you need to go into the application settings for java 6 in the utilities menu and make sure java 6 is selected.
If not then console will probably report that you are still on java 5. Get the linux version of minecraft. Select java 5 for the first boot of minecraft otherwise you get stuck with 'unable to connect to minecraft.net'. Java 5 will connect fine but java 6 wont, Not sure why. After the first log in and update download then switch back to java 6 and enjoy. I found another way to get Java 1.6 to install on Mac OS X Tiger: 1. Download the file from link OP gave 2.
Open the.pkg file inside the disk image with and click install after selecting all the files 3. Let it do its work! The dead link copied and pasted (seems to still work for me) Credit to the original author. How to force reinstall Java on Mac OS X Posted on by If you’ve managed to screw up your existing Java installation on Mac OS X, or you’re looking to downgrade for reason(s) best know to you, here’s a nice and easy way of preventing Mac OS X from telling you it knows best. Note: This method does not require Pacifist and/ or modification of the installation package in any other way. Disclaimer: This works on Mac OS X 10.3.9.
It may or may not work on Tiger. It may or may not blow up your computer. You run it at your own risk. And finally, the method: Step 1 (aka Duh!) Download the version you need to install on your machine from. Step 2 (aka My Lucky Day) Run it and see if it lets you do the needful.
If this step is successful, you shouldn’t have been reading this page in the first place. Thanks for wasting my bandwidth. If not, exit the installer and proceed. Step 3 (aka The Good Stuff) In Finder, go to folder /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Resources and move the files “version.plist” and “Info-macos.plist” to a safe place like the Desktop.
The moving process might prompt you for password and involve two separate transactions – copying files to the target location and then deleting them from the source. Hope I have been successful in complicating a simple process. Step 4 (aka Eureka) Run the installer again and watch as it proceeds with installation. You didn’t think it would work, did you? Step 5 (aka Double Check) Open Terminal and type “java -version”. Is it what you just installed? Step 6 (aka Optional) If you answered yes to #5, it’s safe to delete the files you kept as backup.
You may, however, want to keep them for reasons best known to you. Leave a comment, below, reassuring everyone that this method actually works. If you answered no or if step 4 didn’t work for you and you are running Panther, leave a comment so I can take down this post/ blog. If you are running Tiger, please drop in a line to let all the regular readers of this blog (half a dozen Windows users) know that this technique won’t run on 10.4. Note on disclaimer: In case you are wondering, I was kidding about the blowing up bit. This technique builds on the method described in an official.
While the note says that removing one file would do just fine, my experiments showed you needed to remove both, especially if you are changing versions. Also, like I said above, you can install any version of Java intended for your OS, not just the one that came with your CD/ DVD like the note says. This is a bit off topic as it's for 10.5.8 PowerPC mac, but I found this thread trying to get past the Java 6 requirement for a PPC mac. I ended up installing the 'Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 10' update from but the java 6 it includes (and actually installs) is only for Intel macs.
I did find a way to run Minecraft 1.2.x even with Java 5 and it seems to function well (after toning down the video settings). I downloaded the Minecraft app zip, unzipped it, put it into the /Applications folder then ran the following from Terminal (I actually created an executable text file on the desktop my son can double-click): java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -jar /Applications/Minecraft.app/Contents/Resources/Java/MinecraftLauncher.jar This assumes java is in your path and the Minecraft app is in your Applications folder. It also has java heap size settings that have worked for me so far on an iMac G4 with a gig of RAM. I'm honestly not sure if java on OS X will use swap space if the heap grows above the initial 512 megs but so far so good. The only problem so far is that the initial screen of the app after launching doesn't render the news/notes properly. Maybe a Java 5/6 difference. Once we're into the game everything seems fine.
Before you say 'Everything is fine', let me say this: 1. I have no problem launching Minecraft on PPC 10.5.8 J5 with the official launcher -- now (Mojang fixed this around 1.2.3). I use a script calling Magic Launcher (see earlier in the Mac Os support thread) in a similar manner. Nothing that I can do fixes an apparent byte swap issue that causes torches to generate skylight at night -- moonlit caves -- instead of torchlights. (They actually generate skylight all the time; it's only obvious at night). Nothing that I can do fixes the other half of that apparent byte swap that causes sky exposure to generate torchlight -- fully lit evening landscapes with monsters appearing.
